Bro.. c'mon.. Stop with the labels.. No one is sensitive, and no one is triggered. You have a minority opinion, and it's cool.. No one is upset about it.

That’s a saying meaning if you’re something, better not to accuse others of it. You’re pretty invested in Ingram (which is kind of an understatement really), and heavily invested in him being a star, so an accusation of another person being invested in the other direction doesn’t ring true so much as it sounds like you don’t like hearing what he has to say. That clearer?

Yea that's kinda why I asked you to elaborate.. the parallel you tried to make holds no weight. And I figured it wouldn't even after you made an attempt to explain it.

I'm not heavily invested in him being a star, I'm optimistic about his chances, as I am with Ball, Randle, and Kuz..

I stated that he was invested in proving to us that Ingram isn't as good of a shooter as we think he is.. when no one made any proclamations.. just expressed optimism about his trajectory.. Your assessment of what I do in here is off once again.. but I suppose it's customary for us to have these sort of disagreements from time to time..

Hey, that might be the problem. I observe these tiffs all the time and every once in a while mention something, and it’s me. Projection is a mother.

Eh I said bugging you was 30% of my incentive to vent Ingram frustrations in here .
Tried my best to put the context gently today

BI is developing nicely. Leading score on the team and shooting great. His defense was horrible today but has been better lately.

It's all good really.. you don't have to put anything gently. You just expressed a position that some didn't agree with.. no biggie. At least I didn't think it was a biggie..

I don't understand what that position is.. I said he's been shooting well for only 3 games and it's encouraging and his form looks better. Lol

I think everyone trying to compensate for or help IT hurt everyone defensively.. I'm not sure how they fix it going forward, but the coaching staff will have to figure out a way to have IT out there and it not put our collective defense in jeopardy.

Yeah IT is not a good defender, but they were getting torched while he was on the bench as well. Weak side help from BI and others was terrible tonight.

"He's not a totally good shooter yet" No one was suggesting he was..

"lol you want to declare him a legit shooter after just 3 games." No one suggested he was..

"Everyone is posting like he's for sure turned a corner shooting" No one said he turned the corner when you made that statement.. I remarked that in a sense he has since it's safe to say he's no longer a terrible shooter at the least.

At the end of the day I think we're all in agreement that he's demonstrating that he's a better shooter, and improving.. and we were encouraged by that till you did a drive by on our party lol..

You can fix weak side help, you can’t fix 5 foot 8.

Let's not forget that he completely reworked his stroke over this offseason and is only recently starting to feel comfortable with it in games.

He basically pulled a Markelle Fultz, except instead of hiding and sitting out the season, he toughed that (bleep) out, found another way to be effective, and ultimately seems to have figured it all out

How crazy is that, for someone who started out the year as the worst player in the league. Kid is amazing and will keep improving.

If BI were a rookie, he would be a ROTY candidate.

He's at least a good year younger than the other ROTY candidates.
